Street. Prue's subplot. She's wearing an out-of-character, loose-fitting white shift under a jeans jacket as she greets Trenchcoat Man and offers him her card as a representative of No. magazine. She wants to take his picture. He gives her a flier instead, and some exposition about his daughter who was murdered at the very bus stop at which he's sitting and how he's trying to bring her killer to justice. Prue realizes, "That's why you were here all day yesterday." Hey -- how lazy is Prue? "The Haight," as she calls it, is not just one city block. Perhaps she should have walked around a bit while she took the photos? Anyway, Trenchcoat Man is trying to find a witness to his daughter's slaying. Prue offers the help of her "detective friend." TG says he knows who the murderer is, and looks across the street to a mean-looking, goatee-sporting guy standing in front of a pawnshop. TG tells Prue, "Everyone knows he did it. Trouble is, they're just afraid to talk."
P3AD. Bam! Pow! Zap! Wham! Biff! Buffy! Jody! Sissy! Mr. French! The scene begins right in the middle of a major smackdown between Leo and Dan "There Goes the Neighbor/Hood" Gordon. As Dan tackles Leo and throws him against the wall, Piper walks in and is aghast at her assigned subplot. She shrieks and freezes the two, leaving Dan's fist inches away from Leo's face. She selectively unfreezes Leo, as she mutters, "Okay, you first." Heh. She asks him "what the hell" is going on here, and what Leo did to provoke Dan. Leo tells Piper that Dan just entered the club and started punching. Piper: "There had to be a reason." Leo: "Losing you isn't enough of a reason?" And THAT little comment should be enough to end the Leo vs. Dan worthiness debate, in my opinion. Aw. Piper tells Leo to "assume the position" in front of Dan's fist, so she can unfreeze him. Leo balks, because Dan's about to "clock" him. Piper makes him stand against the wall anyway. When she unfreezes Dan, Leo turns quickly to the side, and Dan's hand hits the wall. HA HA! Dan sees Piper and wonders where she came from. Piper, obviously wearing her Gestapo boots today, declares, "I will be the one asking the questions." Dan refuses to tell her what the fight was about. He bolts. Leo hears his heavenly chime. Piper: "No, you don't. They can wait." Obviously heaven can't wait, because Leo orbs out as we hear Dan slam the nightclub door shut. Piper is pissed off.
University. Campus crime scene. Phoebe's subplot. Cops, paramedics and reporters mill about outside around a body on the ground, covered in a white sheet. Pheebs walks by and spots Darryl "Pity Patrol" Morris. She calls him over to her, because she's one of the lazy Ps. Darryl: "Don't tell me. Demons, right? Or is it warlocks this time?" Phoebe: "Contrary to popular belief, not every crime in this city is demonically related or Halliwell-related, for that matter." Hey! Not even crimes against the theater arts? Phoebe explains that she was on her way to the library, and thought she'd gawk. What happened? Darryl tells her that a college student was decapitated and her body was dumped there. Phoebe asks for the identity of the victim, and realizes that the murdered co-ed is her library friend, Blonde.
